“They’ll now work towards defining the operating principles as they think about how to best distribute the 500 bitcoin towards development efforts.

"A  massive thank you to the working team that made this happen. 7,000 applications to these incredible four, all reviewed with purpose and rigor.”

Abubakar Nur Khalil is a researcher and web builder based in Kaduna. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of Recursive Capital, a firm that invests in the development of the web 3.0 ecosystem in Africa.

22-year-old Khalil is a Bitcoin Core Contributor on the African continent and started his contributions when he was 19.

Previously, Obi was the Founder and CEO of Supalocal and held senior roles at ebookers.com and WeeWorld, overseeing the development of a virtual currency, used by 30 million users.

“Thanks, @jack and the team. Super excited to be a part of this vision, organisation, and mission and to finally be able to talk about it,” Nwosu said while reacting to his appointment.
